R 4® Investments: Retirement Planning

Proper retirement and tax planning can be mitigated by poor investment management and prudent investment management can be made meaningless without proper retirement and tax planning.

Phases of Retirement Planning

1. Contribution Phase (“Seed”)

2. Accumulation Phase (“Store and Grow”)

3. Distribution Phase (“Harvest”)

The contribution and accumulation phases typically get the most focus by financial advisors. However, R4® believes that the distribution phase should be the utmost priority as that will drive the prior two phases.

After all, if you do not plan for how you will spend your savings and investments in retirement then how can you properly plan how much you should save and invest?


While some people believe they know what tax rates will be in five years, it is impossible to have any confidence in knowing what they will be over ten years out. If a client will be taking distributions and/or leveraging gifts in the future, it is important to establish three different buckets of investments with respect to taxation.

1. Ordinary income tax rates (Deferred Taxation like a 401k)

2. Capital gains tax rates (After-Tax Investment Account)

3. No taxation (Roth IRA, Municipal Bonds, or Life insurance Policy)
